Chrome add to taskbar not working in Windows 10November 1, 2015 10:10 pm 2 Comments If you’re having trouble pinning Chrome application shortcuts to the taskbar in Windows 10 try this. Fire up a blank tab in Chrome and click the apps icon in the upper left-hand corner: It should bring up all your most recently used apps, simply right-click on the app you want to pin and just double check you have ‘Open as window’ selected: Now double-click to open the app as normal and you will see the app icon appear on the taskbar, right-click the icon on the taskbar and select ‘pin this program to taskbar’: …and you’re all good – the app icon will remain pinned to the taskbar.

This didn’t quite work for me, but got me to where I wanted. Here’s how I got it to work.
Following your directions, I clicked, “Open as Window” it worked, so I pinned it to the taskbar. Unfortunately after closing it and clicking the new icon in the taskbar, just opened plain ‘ole Chrome, not my desired app.
Instead of clicking “Open as Window” in your picture, I clicked, “Create Shortcuts…”. I chose to create the shortcut on my desktop, then I dragged the shortcut to my taskbar. Clicking that shortcut in my taskbar works just as expected.
Thanks so much for helping me figure this out, you were a life saver!
